It never was about you –

For me, it has been the most difficult week to be a spiritual leader.  The week concluded with the worship ministry team that I oversee being at one another’s throats, including an expression of hatred and blaming me for everyone’s issues.  After spending the night in tears and prayer and seeking the Lord direction, a calmness came over me when I realized the need to ask the team this question, “When did it become about you?” When a person is in ministry and processes the ministry through emotions and personal needs, rest assured that you are on your way to a fall. I think that says it all for this blog.

    As humans, regardless of our careers, we often fall into the situation instead of remaining focused to keep our eyes open to see in. Then we become useless to the person needing us in the first place. We can’t empathize, or even word any advice correctly because of it. Prayer will keep that bridge so that one can see in to help the other. Yes, the ones in leadership are held to higher standards and held accountable in Gods eyes. He hears your prayers.
